How do authentic places come to exist? Is our current real estate development process setup to produce truly loved and enduring places? How are the urban generations effecting our cities and towns?

The youth of today are rediscovering the excitement that living in a city brings—seeking out, discovering and oftentimes helping to create the most authentic places one can find. The following presentation started a conversation at CNU17 about the increasing complexity that the “Hipster Effect” is bringing to our cities, towns and villages.

A big thanks to Ari Heckman, Max Reim and Katie Urban for sharing their ideas and helping start the conversation.
